Rosette beginnings

Bonus night continued last night, setting this going at 1am and not dropping a sub until 5.

This is six months, almost to the day, after getting my first telescope for my 40th. I'm really chuffed with how far I've come, and chuffeder that I started at all.

I've gone and overcooked the processing, as usual, but more data will hopefully help me take my fingers off all the buttons.

17 x 300s on each channel, SHO. I left the green in, dont mind it for now.


Astrobin here https://www.astrobin.com/dl0vui/


I think this is one of only two images that I've been pretty happy with without cropping. Automatic background Extraction in PI is quick and I think tidies things up pretty well.

haha! Thanks Mike. I was lucky enough to get a look at a longer reply, and was glad to read it . I definitely don't have a degree in this stuff, and really appreciate your taking the time to explain it

Sorry Ray, I've been mucking around with versions and so on. Have just put up the version that the thumbnails here came from, should be good to go now with the link in the original post

Very very nice JP. This is one of those objects that I think has its merits in both true color and scientific color schemes. Well done 👍

Thanks a lot, Ryan, Martin and Mike


Martin, I'm banking on slowing down a bit after this first year, collecting half-done images of many things... I 'd really like to choose one or perhaps two things per month to do a really good job of some time. Maybe it'll take a few laps of the sun to settle into that routine, though! Definitely have more to do here when this weather clears, though.
